Join the guided Otter Cycling Trail @ Changi this Sat 28 Jul 2012: 8.00am – 1.00pm!

Join Toddycats! for a guided cycling event this coming Saturday 28 Jul 2012 led by Meryl Theng aka Ottergirl and Amanda Tan aka Chicken girl!

This ride will introduce you to a safe route from Changi Village to Lorong Halus, Serangoon and Punggol reservoirs on a rented bike they will arrange for you and they will tell you stories about otters, red jungle fowl, mangroves and other wildlife!

The ride will be along the northeastern coastline of Singapore, which will feature several sites with otter presence. It will be a relaxing and fun ride, interspersed with pit stops where your friendly guides will introduce you to the wildlife in beat-up natural areas. Not to worry if you’re not a frequent cyclist, as long as you can ride a bicycle confidently (not wobbly cyclists), you’re invited!

The ride will be led by Meryl Theng, aka Ottergirl, who has conducted otter research in these areas. Assisted by Amanda Tan (aka Chicken Girl) and other guides, they will tell you stories about otters, red jungle fowl, mangroves and other wildlife.

We meet at Changi Village at 0800 SHARP to rent bicycles at Mr Bikes Enterprise (1 Changi Village Road #01-2050, Singapore 500001, directions below).
